I thought it could have gone either way but generally in those situations the guy that is the aggresser and controls the center of the octagon/gets the take downs wins the round. Under the judging criteria I had it 3-2 for bendo simply for that but it definitely could have gone the other way.

Bendo | Aldo | Cerrone | Vitor | Fedor | Cormier

I like Bendo WAY more than Frankie. I thought Bendo won the 1st fight convincingly, but I also thought that Frankie won the second fight even if it was more close.

Even if you hate that site or any site listed. It's just the insane number of sites that scored it for Frankie. That list includes most of the sites I'm aware of that score fights.
You get the point, it was an awful decision and most people in the MMA community agree. This is coming from someone that hates Frankie Edgar.

I have to agreee with OUSOONERSOU, because I was rooting for Bendo and I don't really like Frankie's style and was never really a fan of his, and I too think he won the fight.

Why does this have reverence? I mean the only way any fight is not able to be given to either fighter is that in the case of a KO, TKO or Submission. If fight ends in anyother fashion people will argue. I feel Henderson won however slight the margin. What should be done to prevent this? Go back in time to the days where fights continued until one opponent could not continue???

So you can make an argument that JDS beat Cain in that last fight? Nate Diaz over Bendo? Fitch over GSP?

I would never try to sell that but yes I am sure you have those who would try and sell that kind of information to any who would listen.

Just watched both fights twice each. I actually went to see their second fight in Denver.
Yeah, it's a slow day at work.

I scored the first fight 49-46 for Henderson.
I scored the second fight 49-46 for Edgar.

I scored the first fight for Henderson pretty clearly. I didn't think it was domination or anything but I thought he won rounds two through five. Rounds two and four were especially pretty clear rounds for Henderson in my opinion while the third was closer but still a winning round for Henderson. I did think that round five could have been a draw but I leaned towards Henderson. I wasn't shocked at all when the decision was announced and thought it was the correct call.
Interestingly enough, in the second fight, I scored rounds two through five for Edgar. I thought he won all of those rounds fairly convincingly and I was shocked to hear that Henderson took a split decision verdict. The only round that I thought Henderson won was the first.

Speaking of which, was anyone else pretty confused by Henderson's preformance in his second contest with Edgar? He had a great gameplan in the first that seemd to be working really well, then after he got dropped by Frankie in the second round, he completely abandoned his gameplan and in my opinion was outclassed from there on after. I have no idea why he didn't stick with the leg kicks especially when it was working so well.

Don't be silly. Those fights are definitive wins.
